Potato Rolls (extremely good!!)

I found a new recipe for rolls and I think it is one of the best roll recipes I've ever tried. I used my bread machine to make the dough which took about an hour and a half. I roll the dough into balls placed on a greased cookie sheet and baked them a bit under 375o for about 10 to 12 minutes or till lightly browned.

Place the ingredients in bread machine in this order:

1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup softened margerine or butter
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup leftover mashed potatoes (includes whatever you added when you made them such as butter,salt, and milk)
2 Tablespoons of sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups flour or bread flour
3 teaspoons of yeast

After the bread machine is on for a few minutes you may need to add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water to the dough if it appears dryer than you like. Let it rise, (takes about 1 1/2 hours) Punch down the dought and form into about 20 rolls. I formed them into balls and they were a bit like a fluffy biscuit, but you could put them in muffin tins to keep a more roll like shape. Brush tops sparingly with oil or butter, cover with light weight cloth and let rise until doubled. Bake about 10 or more minutes at 375 or until lightly browned. I freeze the leftover rolls and reheat briefly in a microwave oven.
